Though equally turned on to arcade and home video games, we find...

Scans of Gray Chang's handwritten notebook detailing the development process of the Atari 400/800 game Claim Jumper, published by Synapse Software. Kevin Savetz scanned this notebook, with permission from Gray, in December 2014. The hi-res, 600 DPI TIFF version expands to 21 GB. I could never get these TIFF files to render right in the Internet Archive in-browser viewer. But when I converted them to JPGs it worked, so you can view the notebook in browser here.
